An unusual tuna (eel) with a magic throat leaps out of his stream and visits a number of children in Champion Street. To each he gives an article of clothing for dancing, or a musical instrument. The children are all from different ethnic communities living in New Zealand. On Champion Street the children all come together and dance all day and all night.

Written by the celebrated Patricia Grace, and with beautiful illustrations by artist Robyn Kahukiwa, this is a very special story for all the children of Aotearoa, and will be enjoyed by those four years and older.
